CR2901: Heiho - Veff Serrations - Designed by James Williams
James Williams is actively involved in teaching Military special operations and government security professionals who must at times perform their daily high risk duties in environments where carry of firearms or larger knives is impermissible. It was at their professional request that these close quarter combat knife designs were developed. 

The result of this request is the CRKT Heiho. The distinctive blade shape is classical Samurai which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as slashing performance. A stainless steel Inter- Frame build with a liner lock, polished G10 scales, ambidextrous thumb-disk opener, and black stainless steel carry-clip round out the make up of this defensive folder. 

The Heiho makes full use of our patented OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, and if required, can be quickly disabled easily. The Heiho also incorporates our patented* LAWKS™ safety. This locks the blade in the fully open position making this folding knife a virtual fixed blade. The innovative and patented Veff Serrations are a welcome new addition to the Heiho. Veff Serrations superior rope, fiber, and technical cutting ability is well documented and exclusively offered by CRKT. 

The Heiho™ professional folding knife is overbuilt to last. This is arguably as much defensive security as you can find in a small, easily concealed, tactical folder.

Follow up review
I previously reviewed this knife somewhat negatively due to it's hard, balky opening. I contacted CRT via their website. They promptly replied and asked me to send the knife to them for repair or replacement. In a little over a week after I sent my knife to CRKT I received it back. The difference is night and day! The Heiho now opens fast and smoothly. This is now the great knife I expected of CRKT. I now rate the Heiho a 4.5. I rate CRKT customer service a 5+. CRKT stands behing thier products.

Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Good quality - rough opening
The Heiho folder would be a great EDC knife except for one thing, it is hard to open, and also rough opening. The materials and construction are first rate, but I can't get past how hard it is to open. I like having the 2nd lock, too. The Heiho is easy to close. I own other CRKT kines and they all open smoothly, not the Heiho. When you do get it to open the "assist" mechanism only partially opens, and does it fast enough to outrace your thumb. If you're not careful, your thumb will find the very sharp edge. If this knife opened smoothly I would rate it a 4 or 5. The Heiho's balky opening rates it only a 2. It's a shame that such a well made knife isn't well finished enough to open smoothly.
